The Dota Patcher is currently still in development, so there's still some known issues that need to be fixed. Here is the list of current issues at the time i write this post:

Issue: Banlist will not open properly.
Reason: This is because the launcher does not have the ability to stagger program execution, when banlist starts war3 is not fully loaded so banlist complains.
Solution: Implement a delay between program execution
Status: Pending Implementation

Issue: All of the news dates, at least on my system, are listed as December 13, 2003
Reason: News currently is not automatically generated from the dota allstars announcements
Solutions: Ensure news is synced, either through automatic syndication or some other means
Status: Pending Implementation

Issue: A user should be able to have multiple "play profiles" easily selectable
Reason: People may need to change between two or three profiles depending on their current play situation
Solution: Create a way for users to create, manage, and select multiple run profiles
Status: Pending Implementation

Curious? Well, i do. If you already download and tested it, you can share your thought about Dota Patcher here. And if you found problem or bugs, you can post it directly on Dota Patcher sub-forum. Enjoy! :)

  7. The DotA Allstars Patcher is no longer for download at The patcher must be completely changed to reflect new from, and show the latest map and latest AI map (all final), with changelogs for each, and the new name must be " Patcher". I feel that the old patcher is almost no longer in development.
